n : an area of Indiana encompassing Lake County - some contend that Porter County is also included; many Hoosiers immediately recognize a 'Region-Rat' from the subtle nuances in dialect and propensity of proclaiming being 'from Chicago', albight living in Indiana.

Non-'Regionites' are characterized by the ignorant belief that all of da Region is a gang-infested wasteland a la Mad Max or Escape from New York / LA (of the three, the last two can be seen as a degredative insult).

syn: da region
You: 'Where you from?'
Me: 'North-west Indiana, near Chicago.'
You: 'Oh, the region!?'

You: 'Ever been (mugged / raped / shot-at / deported) in Gary?'
Me: 'No, I'm from the Region, not Warsaw!'

Northwest Indiana, generally Lake and Porter counties but some purists believe it's only parts of Lake county, and some losers from LaPorte county call themselves regionites. People from the region are generally left-leaning, blue-collar people as opposed to downright hicks (e.g. the rest of Indiana).

A contiguous three-county area of Indiana that borders Chicago; consisting of Lake, Porter and LaPorte Counties.

The three counties are notably different from the rest of Indiana and more in line with neighboring Chicago in terms of economy, culture, politics and association - even a time zone (the region is on Central Standard, while most of the rest of Indiana observes Eastern Standard).

The region is part of the greater Chicagoland metropolitan area according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
To get from South Bend to Chicago, you have to go through the Region.

Northwest Indiana. Bordering ChiTown - people from “the region” generally say they are from Chicago. Regionites often attend universities in IN (IU, IUPUI, PU, BSU etc.) and are, for the most part, pretty chill.

Natives of Indy (Indianapolis) seem to get along well with from the Region. People from Carmel and Zionsville often say they’re from the Nap (Indy, when they are not) and these people get along well with Regionites. The two cultures are generally, spoon-fed teenagers who think they have some level of street smarts, as they identify with metropolitan regions near them (Region - Chicago; Carmel - Indy).

Individuals from the real Chicago and Indy seldom get along with Regionites; as they claim a city that is not theirs.

If you so happen to meet a Regionite, they will likely have these traits and qualities:
-Some level of arrogance (an Illinois thing)
-Thinking they are “hood” or “perfectly capable” of living in a city

-They 100% all come from money
-They will say they are “broke” while driving their daddy’s brand new Mercedes
-100% guaranteed to say they’re “basically from Chicago”
-Is a diverse culture ethnic-wise
-While they do have some level of street smarts, they are often ill-suited to live in the real Chi or Nap
